Interesting concept.
Generally I use hardware volume buttons to snooze alarm. I can press them with eyes closed :). So I want this function here too.

What "weekdays" button do? If I press "repeat", weekdays will appear and I will choose days. If I press "once" no weekdays will appear, I have nothing to choose.

And I want something like night clock. When brightness turned to minimum and screen is not turning off.

Hi Hitaisin

You are right. You need to need to be able to select the day on a once off alarm. We were talking about a date picker as you may need it for more than a week in advance.

We did some research on the Ubuntu phone OS and it seems the trend is to shy away from hardware buttons. I do agree that using the volume buttons is a good idea and it can be implemented in the code. We would still like to work on the clock faces and the time selection method. Ideally we would like the clocks to blend in with the Ubuntu circles theme they have going.

The night clock is a interesting idea and I feel that the there is space to implement something like that. I think minimum brightness would still eat more battery power than needed so the phone should use the lock screen at night. You could activate a clock function at night if the phones gyro was activated therefore only illuminating the screen when needed. Good point though so we will look at this.

This week has been busy for Dominic so the revisions have been slow. We would still like to fine tune some things and do some use case testing on the UI. Please check over the week end and give us your feedback.

Regards

Matthew

Hi All

We have been working on what we feel is a good layout for the Ubuntu phone clock functions. We would love to hear your input into what we have done so far. I know the colour mock ups are premature as we are flying blind there, but we feel they do a good job at helping visualize what we were thinking.

Just so you know what we are thinking. We have tried to stick with the Ubuntu circles theme. We feel we have done a good job but commentary around this is welcome. Input on the timer select method would also be welcome.

Thanks

Matt

You could have the nightclock on with the charger plugged in making the battery no real issue also dor my alarm i tap anywhere on the screen to snooze and slide luke i am unlocking to turn it off and that works good for me i dont have to find a button just the tophalf of the phone.

Yes that is the idea with our alarm notification. There is a large button in the middle to snooze and to end the alarm the user has to slide a icon to disable the alarm. I am still not sure about this night clock story. Again, are we not then conflicting with the general Ubuntu lock screen? I doubt a night clock would be used by all the phone users so my gut instinct is to leave that for another developer to add to the app store. But if we can get some dialog around this that would be great.

The theme looks great...

how about a pause button in the timer? I mainly use the timer to find out how much of something i can do within a given time and it is not without interruptions in between...

And regarding time selection, it is a very good idea, but the user would be unable to change the hour alone since to get to that finger speed he would have to go through the lower speeds also... the user also wouldn't be able to change direction...

Another thing that requires dialog is what the ubuntu circle will represent.

In the timer, i feel it is intuitive for it to denote what fraction of the time has passed. The user can immediately make sense that half/quarter/whatever of the time has passed without having to do the math.

But i have no idea as to what it can represent in the stopwatch and wakeup screens.

I love it. Congrats on your awesome work.

@Roshan, yes the stopwatch was a difficult one I was thinking just perhaps a low opacity animation of the small white dots around the clock face moving round (to denote the stopwatch is running).
@BoardDWorld Thanks very glad you like it.
